Evasi0n JailBreak Tool (iOS 6 to 7.0.6)

Hi Guys,

In an earlier post, we discussed about different ways of rooting. Today, we are gonna discuss about the Evasi0n JailBreak Tool, which is used to jailbreak devices running with Apple’s iOS. Generally it is used to jailbreak iOS 6.0.0 to iOS 7.0.6. You can check your iOS version in Settings > General > About > Version. We will discuss every aspect of Evasi0n jailbreak in brief. So, let us start.

What is Evasi0n JailBreak Tool?

A tool named Evasi0n have been released by the Evad3rs Team which allows for an untethered jailbreak on devices, running iOS 6.x.x to iOS 7.0.x.

Who are the Evad3rs Team?

Team Evad3rs was established earlier in 2013, consisting of some of the jailbreak community’s most talented developers: Nikias Bassen (Pimskeks), Planetbeing (David Wang), France-based Pod2g (Cyril) and Los Angeles-based MuscleNerd; all known for producing reliable jailbreaks in the past. This team was assembled to develop a reliable untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x.x. Later, they also developed it further to jailbreak iOS 7.0.x.

How to get it?

To use the Evasi0n JailBreak Tool to root your iOS device, first you need to install Evasi0n, which is easily available to download via the following link of Team Evad3rs. Download it in your PC. Here are the links –

How to use it?

Preparation –

i) After downloading the zipped file, unzip it in your PC.
ii) Install iTunes, if not installed already via link 32 bit OR 64 bit.
iii) Backup your device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using Evasi0n. If something breaks, you’ll always be able to recover your data. (Personally I prefer to reset my iPhone and not making a full backup, that’s too slow. iCloud is still a better option regarding speed).
iv) Those who use backup passwords in iTunes must disable them for now.  After doing so, iTunes makes a brand new backup. Please wait for that backup to complete before proceeding! Feel free to re-enable your backup password after jailbreaking.
v) Disable the lock pass-code of your iOS device before using Evasi0n via Settings > General > Pass-code Lock.
vi) Disable Find my iPhone and enable AirPlane Mode via Settings.

JailBreaking –

vii) Launch iTunes, plug-in your device, once iTunes identifies your device, Launch Evasi0n and kill iTunes via Windows Task Manager.
viii) Click “Jailbreak”. Just sit back and see its progress.
ix) Avoid using your device or iTunes related tasks until the process is complete. You can just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs.
x) {Optional step} If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (by holding the Power and Home button simultaneously until the Apple Logo appears), and restart the process.
xi) Once the process is done, you will need to unlock your iOS Device, you will find a “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Open it, the screen will go black for a few seconds.
xii) After sometime, the Evasi0n software on desktop will announce “Jailbreak complete!”.
xiii) It isn’t done yet. Wait for at least 5-7 minutes. Your device will reboot several times to complete the process.
xiv) Once this is done, you will have “Cydia” app on the home screen which is your AppStore for JailBroken devices.
xv) You can also set a pass code and enable Find my iPhone.
xvi) Now enjoy your jailbroken device.

Precautions-

xvii) If you try to update your device’s iOS version through the phone itself (i.e. OTA Updates), it will un – jailbreak your device. Because in higher versions of iOS, often the security holes are patched. These security holes are used to exploit and root the phone which are present in earlier version of iOS.
xviii) But you can again jailbreak the newer version of iOS too. 😉
